LEADERSHIP

The original meaning of the word “theology” was “union with God in prayer.” … Through the discipline of contemplative prayer, Christian leaders have to learn to listen again and again to the voice of love and to find there the wisdom and courage to address whatever issue presents itself to them …

When we are securely rooted in personal intimacy with the Source of life, it will be possible to be flexible without being relativistic, convinced without being rigid, willing to confront without being offensive, gentle and forgiving without being soft and true witnesses without being manipulative.

Henri J. M. Nouwen2

John 17:23

PRAY
1. Thank God for our pastors, elders and leaders for who they are and for what they do.
2. The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord, rests upon them.
3. Anointing in preaching, in binding and healing the brokenhearted, in discerning signs of the times.
4. Holy and competent, capable of leading even in the complex and difficult times.
5. Faith may not fail.
6. Supported and loved by caring people and the congregations. (1 Thess. 5:12-13a)

~“Prayer is not pious platitudes uttered in convention or convenience. It is releasing the power of God to will and to work for His own good purposes”- Pr. Daniel Ho~
